Relentless Advocacy for Clients in Family Law Matters
Kamelia “Mia” Poppe, Esq. is the founding partner of The Law Firm of Poppe & Associates, PLLC. She is an experienced practitioner of family law, with niche competencies in high net worth divorce, father’s rights, same sex divorces, the Hague Convention and international child custody, abduction and wrongful retention, and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA).

The Firm’s moniker is “Relentless Advocacy”, and the entire team prides themselves in strong advocacy for their clients.
22 Years as a Senior Business Leader
Mia Poppe grew up in the heart of the South in Charleston. The granddaughter, of a sharecropper, from a young age Mia learned how to “make lemonade” when you get lemons, and also how to “dance in the rain”. People that knew her from her early years fondly call her a Steel Magnolia, a comparison that Mia accepts and embodies.
After graduating from College of Charleston she began her financial and banking career working for Citigroup in the San Francisco Bay area. For the next 22 years she worked as a Senior Business Leader at Citigroup, G.E. Capital, and Bank of America.
Mia’s tenure at these organizations developed her strong leadership skills, as well as gave her the experience necessary to adeptly navigate the most complex financial information and documents. Her financial acumen is key in resolving matrimonial matters, especially high net worth divorces, as economic issues dominate most divorces. Although Mia has strong financial acumen, the team works with forensic accountants on high net worth divorces. The forensic professionals the team works with are skilled at asset tracing, lifestyle analysis, and identifying undisclosed assets.

As a mother, Ms. Poppe understands the nuiances involved in custody matters, such nuiances frequently go undetected by many.
